Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by mostly wonderful I love these panels. my only critique is that the wood in the middle panel appears quite a bit darker. I know this is to be expected with natural wood finish, it is still a rather noticeable difference. they are so heavy, i couldn't bear to send them back for a replacement. also the colors of the design on top of the wood background is glossy gray, in the picture on website and in catalog it looks more natural brown. still beautiful.  August 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by worth every penny These panels are great quality and great value.  Quite unique in that the shapes are high energy but the colors are warm and subdued. I get a lot of compliments on this  wall hanging, which says a lot because I like in a very artsy area.  August 7, 2014
